I think that goosebumps Horrorland is a very good book because it has three parts to it and its cool. There was a kid named Marco and his friend Gabriella she was Marcos friend Marco has been collecting comic books of all sorts. Then they went to Horrorland and there was a guy who knows where the good games are they did that and they played tug-o-war but know one was going against them. Then they got a coupon it said,10% off at chiller house then they both went there and Marco saw a comic book h ...more

As the endgame draws near for this incarnation of the Horrorland series, one would expect Jonathan Chiller's involvement in the plot to be increasing; however, that isn't really the case in The Wizard of Ooze. As with all of the other books in this second tier of the series excepting Weirdo Halloween, Jonathan Chiller only appears at the beginning and the end, deepening the mystery over what he has planned for the kids who have bought merchandise from his Horrorland souvenir shop. The story arc ...more

I'm still finding this series cute. Unfortunately, though, I have been jumping around in the series due to my library's availability, so the Horrorland parts of the book are making no sense to me.

This one was good. It's about a boy and girl who go to the amusement park Horrorland and find an elusive book about the character The Ooze. They take it home and find that in the back of the book are ways in which you can get your own superpowers, but other people want the book, too and will stop at nothing in order to get it.

Here's my thing; Stine has created 3 super villains that escape to the 'real world'. However, none of the kids acknowledge the comic book based off of the other villains. It's been established that Goosebumps is a shared universe, so why does the boy in this book NOT see a 'Masked Mutant' cosplay at the convention?
Any way, this book was ok. Not Stine's best, but certainly far from his worst.

This was my first time reading one of the books of this series and I have to admit it was entertaining. Granted it is geared toward a younger audience I still found it worth reading. I picked it up at a library booksale. Well worth the price I got it for!

Another good Goosebumps story I read with my son. The chapter endings were not as leading as some of the previous books, but another solid story with characters my son talked about for days after we were done.

I thought that the book was really good and it was really interesting how almost everything was a surprise like that ooze guy and the fabulous f;ame appearing in the boys bedroom. I recommend this book.

Was reading with my son and he loved the story. Don't get me wrong I loved reading the Fear Street stories by RL Stine when I was a teen. The whole Goosebumps series just never grabed me.
